    Changed to Mobil LS1 in my 2006 Tundra 4WD Limited slip (LS) about 8 months ago. After about 3-5k miles I started getting a chattering noise when turning sharp. Thought it was the front end, could not find anything wrong. Transmission maybe??? So I had the trans flushed at the Toyo dealer.(120k miles on truck). Could not be my rearend...I have Mobil 1. Changed over to Lucus 80W-90 standard gear oil with 1/3 of a bottle of the KW LS additive. My truck drives perfect again and turns are very smooth. Can't believe it took me 20k miles to figure out this product is all hype. The oil was still very clear though when I drained it. Only positive thing I can think of?

              Synthetics are always the best lubricant. Shear strength, viscosity consistency and ease of use in any climate are always benefits of synthetics over conventional petroleum products. I use Mobil 1 products in my GT, my H-D, the wife's Lexus and my 17 year old 4Runner. Good stuff.

                    I've used Mobil1 gear oil for more than ten years in nearly everything. I've used it in more than a few limited-slip differentials with no chattering or other nonsense. But they were all Fords. Based on other reviews, some other manufacturer's limited-slip differentials may need limited-slip additive to be added. Though I would try it without before doing this. If you do experience chattering, you can extract a few ounces and replace it with the additive. Some issues may be attributed to using the incorrect weight. Always use what the manufacturer recommends. If it requires 75w-140, do not try to save a few bucks with 75w-90. If it requires 75w-90, do not think that the thicker oil is good for your application. It will decrease your efficiency and prematurely wear your components.

                              Part of my regular maintenance gear oil change. Just hit 215,000 miles in my '98 Tacoma 3.4L MT 4x4. No issues and everthing runs like a champ. Might not be a redline product, but for the price it has always worked well for me (esp with a 30% off coupon!).

                                Very happy with this gear oil. Gear shifting is a lot smoother now, and it doesn't smell as bad as traditional gear oil. Only 4 stars because I still had to add a friction modifier even though the product says it's for limited slip.

                                      Hello, and good afternoon.

                                      I recently bought a 2014 VW Vento which has 5 gear Standard Transmission, I would like to drain the factory oil and use a Mobil 1 Synthetic Lubricant. Would this work for my car? If not please recommend me the right oil to use in order to have Ultimate protection on it.

                                      Thank you!

                                        Hi Jorge, happy to help you! The Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lubricant LS 75W-90 is recommended for use in modern high-performance automobiles like SUVs, Vans and light-duty trucks that require API GL-5 and MT-1 level performance. When it comes to repair and maintenance it is always better to refer the vehicle owner's manual for the exact specifications and quantity for safer and better results.

                                        Hi Joshua, I'm glad to help you! The LS 75-90 and 140 is GL-5 rated. As long as your differential in your owners manual and says you can use GL-5 you are okay. If you need a GL-4 the GL-5 will not work and is not back words compatible, it has yellow metals and will not work in that application.

                                        I'm happy to help, Amateur Mechanic! This Mobil1 Synthetic Gear Lubricant LS 75W-90 (Part No. 104361/98W573) does not specifically state that it is yellow metal safe. I suggest Royal Purple Max Gear Synthetic Gear Oil 75W-90 for your 1993 Mitsubishi Lancer (or Mirage). Royal Purple indicates that it is safe for use in both GL-4 and GL-5 applications and yellow metal safe.

                                        Glad to assist, Andy! You cannot utilize this product if your transmission requires an API GL-4 product for the manual transmission.

                                        I'm happy to help, Lashpush! According to the information we have, no additive is required for your 2001 Toyota Sequoia. If you know for certain that you have a limited slip differential, most likely it would be in the rear, then you may require an additive. To find out your axle type there should be a sticker in the driver's side door jamb with an Axle Code. The transfer case does not require any additive. There is some information about Toyota axle codes here available - however this information is provided by a 3rd party and Advance Auto Parts is not responsible for the information provided: http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/faq/vin/. I've also located some information in regards to the introduction of limited slip to the Sequoia from a question answered by a Certified Toyota and Lexus technician here: http://www.justanswer.com/toyota/3k388-toyota-sequoia-rear-end-transfer-case-front-end-seals.html

                                        Great question! Mobil 1 makes great lubricants for your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4x4. Being GL-5 rated makes this an even better product. That being said Toyota recommends the use of their 75W-85 for the differentials and for the transfer case I see they recommend the Toyota transfer case LF gear oil. I found that a majority of FJ Cruiser owners that post online seem to use 75W-90 full synthetic lubricants. For any warranty purposes I would recommend staying with the Toyota recommended products.
